He was born in Arkaḥ and studied Syriac at the village school. In 1946, he migrated to Syria where he taught at Gharkishamo, Qubūr al-Bīḍ, and Qamishli. In 1962 he taught at the Monastery of Mor Gabriel where he was ordained a deacon, then a priest in 1963 for Arkaḥ, Arbo, and Kafro. In 1965 he served in Qubūr al-Bīḍ.
He wrote a book on the massacres of Ṭur ʿAbdin titled Gunḥe (Glane, 1987), and composed poems. He translated from Arabic into Syriac verse Afram Barsoum’s Qīthār al-Qulūb (a collection of poems) (1969), and from Kurdish Shemʿun II of Beth Manʿem’s poem Lawij.
